"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN.com - Hussein a no-show in court - Feb 1, 2006

CNN.com - Hussein a no-show in court - Feb 1, 2006: "Abdel-Rahman was brought in as chief judge Sunday to replace a predecessor who resigned amid criticism he was not doing enough to control the proceedings."

Sounds like he is doing what he was brought in to do. Hussein and his attorneys have been allowed to play this farce for far too long. Hussein is basically taking a page from the playbook that has dragged this mess on since the early '90s. If they choose to flout the authority of this court, which certainly holds more real authority than Hussein did, Abdel-Rahman should continue as he has.

I wonder how proud Ramsey Clark is of himself.
